My full sized jars are Wonder Woman colors haha!
So the first jar is Spellbound, which the describe as a "Dark shimmery blue between a royal and navy blue."
Next is Dragon Slayer, which there is no description for on their site. But I'd call it a burnt mustard/gold color
And the last full sized jar I got is Vamp, which they describe as, "Deep wine red with copper sparkles."
The sample baggies (I've never used a loose shadow from a baggie before so this was weird for me).
And swatches! I wanted to show swatches when applied differently. So the left column is a dry swatch. The middle is over Lime Crime's Eyeshadow Helper (I swear this stuff is like magic for loose colors like this!). The right column is foiled with water.
I'm WAY disappointed in Laura. I expected a much better color payoff. Red Hot is an interesting color. It's very glittery, which of course, you can't tell in my pictures because that's how it works haha. And Cheap Thrills is super unique, especially when applied wet.
If I had been able to pick three full sized jars from these colors, it would have been the colors they sent me full sized jars of. They say that they have 1-3 grams of product in a jar which is not really small difference. I'm not sure how they measure them out but you'd think there'd be a more consistent amount of product per jar. But they're only $6.50 apiece which is great. They apply exactly how I expect a loose shadow to apply.
I did a look using Vamp and Dragon Slayer today. I'm not much for wearing reds and rust colors, though I like what they do for my eyes, I feel like they suck the life from my skin. But here's the look I did which I surprisingly liked a lot!
Vamp is probably my favorite color. It's so gorgeous. There's a little bit of glitter but not too much and it's just stunning foiled!
What I'm wearing:
Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper
BFTE "Vamp" foiled on lid
Urban Decay "Buck" to blend up from crease
BFTE "Dragon Slayer" above crease
Inglot 351 M for highlight area
Bobbi Brown gel liner "Black Ink"
Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express mascara
ELF studio cream liner "Coffee"
Anastasia brow pencil "Blonde"
Anastasia brow powder duo "Taupe"
Monistat Anti Chafing Gel as primer
Carmindy for Sally Hansen Your Skin Foundation in "Porcelain" (WAYY too light)
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation in "Buff" (too dark)
(since Revlon, L'oreal, and MAC supported SOPA I've been avoiding their products)
Maybelline Dark Circle Eraser in "Fair"
Maybelline Super Stay concealer in the second to lightest shade
Covergirl Professional loose powder in Translucent Fair
ELF Studio blush/bronzer duo
Ulta "Girlie" blush
Benefit "Coralista" blush as cheek highlight
Buxom "Debbie" lipgloss
Man, that's a lot of products!! That's because I just keep adding stuff to my face until it looks right haha. I'm sure I'd stop sooner if I didn't have so much makeup! I don't usually list everything I use but I know some people like to know what foundation and stuff randomly so I'll try to post that stuff!
I hope you enjoyed this! If you're in the market for mineral shadows, check out Beauty From the Earth. They're really not that expensive, $6.50 for a full sized jar (a Lime Crime shadow is $14, granted, they're bigger) and my order was shipped the day after I placed it which is quite quickly. I placed my order Wednesday night, it was shipped Thursday and was here on Saturday. So that gets a thumbs up from me!!
